in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
. well, paul ryan repeals but he doesn't replace. and you know what? we don't need to have it replaced. we need to keep the affordable care act in place, moving america in the right direction and helping health care be affordable both to families and to business. we cannot allow the ryan budget to stand. but just being against an idea isn't good enough. and this is why we support the murray -- the murray budget, because she preserves the affordable care act and she continues to emphasize those reforms that we made in quality and prevention and integrateive services. we know how through those quality initiatives we can save money and save lives. others will also speak about medicare. i cannot believe that we're going to replace medicare with a voucher. a voucher and a promise. so let's get rid of -- not deal with the health care needs of the elderly, let's get rid of the financial needs of the federal government. so we'd rather protect billionaires than protect senior citizens. i think we've got our priorities wrong. others will speak to medicare. i want to go to medicaid. and i want to
. host: in the house, they passed the paul ryan plan. happened when it arrived in the senate? it was one of the first thing that senate democrats wanted to do. was not quite a party line vote because there were some conservative republicans and others who voted against it for various reasons as well, but by and large it was a party-line vote. amendmentsare the you're keeping your eye on? >> one of the interesting things with thatn, the buds while it only takes a simple majority vote to adopt just about anything as an amendment to a budget resolution, there are some of votes in which you are loo looking at to see whether 60 senators will support the concept, so that lawmakers have a sense of if they actually were to go down the road and serious legislating on the subject area, that they would get the 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, and a future point. we have a few of those. there are amendments like an attempt to either terminate or reduce the federal sugar subsidy program. there is not an amendment to endorse the idea of allowing states to collect sales taxes for online purchases, an
offer this amendment on behalf of senator paul and myself with senator toomey and mcconnell cosponsoring. it's designed to help 11 million low-income children in this country. we appropriate $14.5 billion every year through our title 1 federal funding. it's supposed to go to them but it doesn't get there. that's agreed upon by both the left and the right. for example, marguerite rosa writing for the center for american progress says that the difference between school expenditures is often substantial and she pointed out that the money goes to schools where teachers are paid more but the children aren't necessarily the poor children. and so the poorer children, the ones we intend to help, are left in schools with less money. sometimes the money can add up to quite a bit. the same analysis is then found by the forwardham foundation, i would say that's a center-right organization because of the federal formula we use. so --. the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mr. alexander: let the money follow the child to the school, whether it's public or private and i thank the presi
